My muse was the ever so proper and dapper: Muriuki Kagiri
Make Up Artist that always brings so much life on set: Nicole Duki
Is there any concept you would like me to do? Drop your suggestions in the comment section 😉
This was the best vacation ever!! Best is an understatement… I promise 😂
The English point marina has the most friendly staff that made us feel so welcomed that we did not want to leave. (We had to extend our stay with one day 😂 )
We stayed in a double room which was $100 for bed only. YES. We got the value for our money and a cherry on top. 😉 The place is also super child friendly so you do not need to worry about not tagging your child along. They provide a baby cot on request. At no extra cost.
MY FAV PART… JET SKIING!!! The adrenaline rush was very much needed. OFF MY BUCKET LIST 🕺🕺
It hosts an infinity pool which overlooks the ocean giving you a breathtaking look and a rejuvenating feel. We even got to breastfeed by the poolside! My friends…we are your goals 😂

Hello guys!! 🕺🕺
I decided to take a dive into baby photography and never look back 😃
It is not easy. It is tiresome. It is rewarding and so therapeutic I promise!!! Those tiny feet and tiny hands 🙈❤️❤️ AND THE EYES!!! Ok I’m done lol!
Here are some of the photos from my first baby shoot. It was a birthday shoot featuring my favorite person ❤️. Yes we had a cake for him to destroy…look at your life baby!
Let”s create memories for your baby 🙂 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I met Alphonce Sungu at Maasai Market in Nairobi, CBD on a fairly hot Sunday afternoon. Alphonce sells these wooden art pieces that are engraved with words and drawings. The pieces fascinated me and I went on questioning him about his work. I’m glad he opened up to me and I got to learn a lot from his life story.
He is a graduate and selling these pieces puts food on his table. He banks on it. No side hustle. Alphonce is a single father to a cute boy that he adores. The baby’s mother left the child with Alphonce and took off when the child was a few months old. Ever since, the father has taken sole responsibility of the child and he works hard to ensure that his son never lacks. One thing he said to me that still remains so fresh in my mind; If I am not able to fend for my son no one else will, so I push myself every single morning to be the better version of myself, both for him and I.

Hello! Telkom Kenya has revamped and is not looking back. Cheers to the marketing team on that and all other respective parties involved.
That aside…have you been keeping up with the Telkom Next Move County tours? Their parties are LIT.
Featuring the Nairobi edition in this post.
-Till next post 🙌💋
Attending really cool events is just one of the perks that come with working under Lyra Aoko Media
The Google Arts & Culture launch was held at African Heritage House which is situated in Mlolongo. The heat there…feels like you’re literally few metres away from the sun. Ok I’m exaggerating but it was quite hot there.
The theme was African and it was elating to see everyone stick to the dress code. The theme also blended in perfectly well with the location. It felt great to see how much people are proud to own their culture which I was afraid had started fading away…
We went by train from Nairobi to Mlolongo and back!!! Not the SGR one but we got to see the SGR train guys…whoop! whoop! ✋✋
Thank you for reading!!
This event was nothing but good vibes!
(Well, apart from the patronizing treatment of local artists backstage… We seriously need to work on treating our local artists with more respect.)
